    Default Coffee grinds from Nespresso pods

    I wasnít sure where to post this thread, hereís hoping itís in the right place.
    Anyway, Iím a coffeeholic and I drink several Nespresso coffees everyday. Nespresso have a recycling service that you can collect your used pods and send them back to them wher your ordering new coffee. However, I bought a device called the Nessie Press which allows me to recover about 98% of the coffee from each pod which I can then wash and put in the recycling bin because it is aluminium. You can do this with the Lůr coffee pods also because they are all aluminium.
    I then have these small quantities of coffee I can add in to my compost.

    See https://www.upress.coffee/products/ristretto

    Anybody else recovering coffee from pods, which type and how do you do it.

    I cut the pod open, Chuck the coffee into a bowl and recycle the pod. The coffee goes onto the blueberry plant.
